Countdown to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – 2 Days Left – Part 1

Written by M.



Here’s Crash Course Lesson #28

The Gilmore Guide to Season 6

Can it be the Gilmore Girls if the Gilmore girls aren’t together? At the end of Season 5, Rory dropped out of Yale and moved into Emily and Richard’s pool house — decisions that broke Lorelai’s heart. That’s handy, because one half of that heart can be deliriously happy with the big new step in her love affair with Luke. Meanwhile, the other half grieves and it seems everyone in town wants mother and daughter to reunite. But it may take an unexpected out-of-towner to make it happen.

Of course there’s much more: Lane gets a surprise that leaves her reeling with joy while Luke gets a surprise that may send the Luke-and-Lorelai relationship reeling.

Take it away Kirk!

Episode 1 – New and Improved Lorelai

Lorelai: I mean we’re getting married, Luke. Married. You and me. Luke ‘Table for one’ Danes and Lorelai ‘I’m sorry can I get an industrial forklift for my emotional baggage’ Gilmore are getting married.

Episode 4 – Always a Godmother, Never a God

Lorelai: You’re watching a Wednesday matinee of Deuce Bigalow you can yell fire all you want. Hell you can set fire to the movie theatre. No one will complain.

Episode 6 – Welcome to the Dollhouse

Luke: Want some coffee?
Lorelai: I’m beyond coffee.
Luke: Beyond coffee. This is big.
Lorelai: I’m fueled by my righteous indignation.

Episode 7 – Twenty-One is the Loneliest Number

Lorelai: We were gonna go to Atlantic City. We were going to sit at a Blackjack table at 11:59 and order martinis. We were gonna play 21 when she turned 21. Then we were going to buy 21 things. And there’s a thing about 21 guys that wouldn’t be appropriate since the engagement, but it was a good plan.

Rory: Listen, reverend. I really appreciate you taking the time out of what I assume is a busy day to come here and talk to me about… all of this, but, um, I’m afraid the ultimate-gift ship has sailed.
Reverend Boatwright: What?
Rory: A while ago. It’s probably in Fiji by now.

Luke: (commenting the “Rory” drink) This tastes pink. Like really pink. It’s really bad; it’s like drinking a My Little Pony.

Episode 10 – He’s Slippin’ ‘Em Bread… Dig?

Rory: They never invited their priest over to try and talk you out of having sex.
Lorelai: Five times! And on the last one, they triple-teamed with a priest, a rabbi, and a Mormon missionary. I made so many jokes that night I should have had a microphone and a brick wall behind me.

Episode 11 – The Perfect Dress

Paris: It’s going to be a great term, people. An important term. A term to change the history of the Yale Daily News. The work will be hard. It has to be hard. Nothing less than perfect will be tolerated. Please remember that I am your editor. I am not your mother, or your hugger. If you need some love, get a hooker. If you’re having a bad day, find a ledge or way to deal. My door is not open to you, ever. You have five minutes to enjoy your cookies. Welcome to the Yale Daily News.

Episode 12 – Just Like Gwen and Gavin

Voice in the Street: Town meeting!
Lorelai: What did they say?
Luke: There was a clown beating?
Lorelai: Huh! Not again.

Episode 13 – Friday Night’s Alright for Fighting

Lorelai: Once upon a time, there was a big house with thick glass windows and heavy stone walls and a slightly pornographic fountain in the driveway. And all the animals in the forest were scared of the house ’cause they thought that the house was haunted, and so did all the villagers in the small hamlet of Hartford.. shire… ville. ‘Maids go in, but they never come out’ they would whisper on the street. One day, a beautiful young cowherderess walked by the house. And suddenly she felt the unbearable need for a strand of pearls and a snifter of 100-year old scotch. So, abandoning her cows, she climbed over the high walls and dropped onto the just-redone tiled walkway and rushed toward the enchanted French doors that the queen had never been happy with because the hardware was not what she had picked, and she refused to pay that idiot designer that she hired off of a recommendation and…
Okay, seriously, this didn’t work when you were 4. I am not sure why you thought it would do any good now.

Episode 15 – A Vineyard Valentine

Lorelai: I wonder if there’s a connection between the shape of lighthouses, ferries, spermaceti, and Gayhead. Hahaha.

Episode 16 – Bridesmaids Revisited

Kirk: I want to get the healthy glow of someone who goes consistently to the gym without actually having to go of course

Episode 17 – I’m OK, You’re OK

Paris: No one invited you in here. Now get out before I go Bonaduce on your ass!

Episode 18 – The Real Paul Anka

Lorelai: Ok, weird dream.
Rory: Weirder than the one when you step into the boxing ring and your hands are creampuffs?

Episode 19 – I Get a Sidekick Out of You

Lorelai: Eh, excuse me. Hi. Mrs. Kim? I’d like you to meet Christopher Hayden. He’s Rory’s father and a MAN!
Christopher: Did that really need clarification?

Episode 20 – Super Cool Party People

Sookie: Super cool party people bid you super cool adieu!!
[Lorelai gives her a puzzled look]
Sookie: That’s how you were saying goodbye to people at the wedding.
Lorelai: Super.

Paris: Forget it. I don’t know how to read charts yet. I could tell you everything I know about the dominant and recessive genes of a fruit fly but God forbid I learn how to read a chart until I’m a 4th year surgical resident.

Episode 21 – Driving Miss Gilmore

Richard: Personally, I like you with glasses.
Lorelai: It’s that whole, dirty librarian thing, right dad?

Episode 22 – Partings

Rory: You’re grounded!
Lorelai: Sorry, Mom! Kimmy saw this guy at the mall, who was a total Chachi and he bought us a Slurpee and we totally lost track of time.
Rory: I called you twice! I left messages. I called the national guard, who didn’t answer because they’re all in Baghdad.
Lorelai: Well, I just checked my messages.
Rory: I won’t be ignored, Dan!

Lorelai: What’s this?
Richard: Don’t touch that!
Lorelai: Oh my God! It’s weapons of mass destruction! Quick! Get the president on the phone! If he’s not in the oval office, try the ice cream room!

Have love,
